I've just become Chair of the St Olave & Bermondsey United Charities.
Amongst other things the Charity provides annual birthday gifts of £100 to pensioners living in the Bermondsey and Rotherhithe Area. The main eligibility criteria are that the applicant must be 70 or over and have lived in the area for at least 5 years. I'm really keen to promote the charity as of late the number of new applicants each quarter have been considerably out-numbered by the number moving or passing away.
If you know of any pensioners who could be eligible please do put them in touch with
St Olave & Bermondsey United Charities
6-8 Druid Street
020 7407 2530
The charity also provides holidays, Christmas gifts and educational grants to low income families and occasional small grants to community groups operating in the area.
